Book Description

This book looks at how the poetry of Seamus Heaney, born of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, has encountered the 'historically-tested imaginations' of Czeslaw Milosz, Joseph Brodsky, Osip Mandelstam, and Zbigniew Herbert. It argues that East Europeans have made a strong impact on Heaney's work.
